Emmanuel Hannaux

Emmanuel Hannaux (French, 1855-1934) began studying at the industrial school in Strasbourg, but returned to Metz at the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war in 1870. He continued his studies at the School of Modelling and Sculpture. In 1876 he moved to Paris, where he was admitted to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and taught under Dumont, Thomas and Bonassieux. At the 1889 Salon, Hannaux won the third medal for his “Le Bûcheron”; in the same year he received the second medal for his patriotic group “Le Drapeau”, now in the Musée de Draguignan; and in 1894 he received the first medal for his “Orphée Mourant”, now in the Musée de Luxembourg.
